Screening of Thyroid disease

Thyroid function tests (TFTs) is a collective term for blood tests used to check the function of the thyroid.
Evaluation of thyroid hormone levels is essential for the treatment of infertility patients.

TFTs may be requested if a patient is thought to suffer from hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) or hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), or to monitor the effectiveness of either thyroid-suppression or hormone replacement therapy. It is also requested routinely in conditions linked to thyroid disease, such as atrial fibrillation and anxiety disorder.

A TFT panel typically includes thyroid hormones such as thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH, thyrotropin) and thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) .
